|Full Day Camp Program
Spend your summer days riding at Pennington Equestrian Center’s Summer Day Camp
improving your riding and horsemanship skills. Boys and girls ages 7 and up are invited to join
the staff of PEC for a unique experience they will never forget. Besides improving riding skills,
the camp program is designed to teach students of all levels how to care for the horses and
equipment and understand the nature of horses and how to work with them in a safe environment.
Each week, the students will be assigned a horse, which they will ride in their daily lessons. They
will be responsible for grooming the horse, caring for the equipment and simulating some of the
duties that come along with owning their own horse.
Each day will have a different horse related topic. The campers will participate in activities,
discussions and projects to enhance their knowledge on each subject. They will also have a daily
riding lesson each morning and will have an afternoon trail ride at least one day per week.
In addition to the on farm activities, each Thursday we will travel to a horse show where every
rider will be able to participate. All classes are age and experience level appropriate.
Campers should bring their own lunch each day. Refrigeration is not available so a small cooler or
lunch box with an ice pack is recommended. Please make sure to pack extra water on hot days!
Parents are responsible for arranging transportation to and from camp. If you are interested in a
carpool, please let us know at registration and we will try to coordinate interested parties.
Campers should arrive between 8:15 and 8:30 each morning. Please notify the farm if a camper
will be absent. Pick up time is 3 pm. All campers must be signed in and out.
Half Day Junior Camp Program
The half day junior camp program is designed specifically for our younger students, aged 5-7
years. The day will be run much like our full day camp, but will end at 12:30 p.m. The students
will have a riding lesson each day, except for Thursday, when we will travel to a horse show,
where they will be able to participate. All classes are age and experience level appropriate.
Campers should bring a snack each day. Refrigeration is not available so a small cooler or lunch
box with an ice pack is recommended. Please make sure to pack extra water on hot days!
